Question
Do Muslims believe in Bible & Torah?

Answer
Assalam-O-Alaikum,

BISMILLAHER RAHMAN-O-RAHIM,

Muslims believe in the five holy books or scriptures mentioned in the Qur’an as original revelations: the Scrolls as revealed to Abraham; the Torah as revealed to Moses; the Psalms as revealed to David; the Gospel as revealed to Jesus; and the Qur’an as revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. While Muslims accept that these holy scriptures were revealed by God, they do not believe that they have been preserved in the original form or language as when they were first revealed. Muslims believe that those aspects of the previous scriptures which were important to preserve are reiterated in the Qur’an, which is viewed by Muslims as the last and final revelation. Therefore, Muslims follow the teachings of the Qur’an rather than the other previous books, but may cite or refer to the Bible and Torah as they may refer to any religious text.

Wassalams,
